I have had my 5d for awhile now, got it second hand. It's been working just great, but lately, I've noticed a strange distortion or noisebar I guess, on the lcd when I view photos after a shot. Now it may be something that's been there awhile, maybe I just haven't noticed until now. I'm not sure if this will effect printed photos, I'm having a new test batch printed at the photo lab and will pick them up tomorrow just to make sure.

I changed lenses, checked settings, etc. and just can't figure out what's going on. It's only viewable on the left side of the lcd and it's a small area on the left and is clearly defined and goes from the top to the bottom of the lcd on the left side only. I usually can't see it if I look at a photo at regular magnification, but when I start to really zoom in and look around, it's always there on the left side of the lcd. When I import a photo into DDP, there it is.

So, anybody have any ideas as to what this is and if I should have the camera serviced? Anybody that knows what this is or thinks they might have an idea, let me know. I'll try to include an example here when I get a chance.

Thanks.

Have you looked at any of the images on your computer ?

When you view it at normal resolution (screen fit) in DPP, can you see it, or only if you zoom in?

Can you post an example?

were you using the cactus triggers with your flash? Do you have a sample pic you can post up?

I'll see if I can post something tomorrow as far as images. I was using the genesis 200 kit when I first starting noticing it on the black backdrop images, around f16. I was using the Calumet brand wireless trans/rec. And yes, I looked at the images on the computer and in DPP, I do see this strange noisebar or distortion on the left side of the image. Very defined area on left from top to bottom of the lcd. Well, I can't really see it when I'm at regular photo size w/o zooming. I seem to maybe see a hint of it, but with just one magnification, it's obvious. I tried just using the camera w/o flash; just took some shots around the house. Now it does not seem quite as obvious, but if I really magify the view to the max, IT IS THERE. So lenses make no difference, using the strobes or not using them, still there. So probably a sensor or shutter? That bites; got it second hand awhile back and has been really good, no problems until now. At least I have my XSi as a backup. So anybody have an idea of repair cost? I know it could be sensor, shutter or maybe something else, but if one of those two, estimate to repair. And again, I'll try to get some images posted when I can.

Thanks

You'll have to post images to get a good answer, but when a shutter starts to go, it usually produces a black line at the top or bottom of the image. Never at the sides. The shutter moves top-to-bottom.

You think just interference? I thought maybe something to do with the Calumet tran/rec. unit I got when I bought the Genesis 200 2-light kit. But, I tested the camera w/o even using the strobes, just shots inside with existing light and still do see this vertical noisebar on the left side of the lcd and the image when I put it in DPP. Here's a shot showing this on the left side of the lcd.

Need to see a few more images like that. If I look at the bottom, just looks like a creased BG?

went to your flickr and its hard to tell what it is with such a small picture. Just so we're sure, did you link just the banding portion of the picture on the page? All I'm seeing is a strip of portion of a picture.

Try taking the tranceiver completely off the camera and shooting a picture. Is the interference banding still present?

That's what it looks like to me. Need more samples. Post the full-size image.
